Thread Name: Honorary doctorate for m.carthy
Subject: Honorary doctorate for m.carthy
Hi
I haven't seen this info anywhere else so I thought I'd share it.
Martin Carthy has been awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of Central Lancashire (my own alma mater). I think this is his second doctorate. Apparently, instead of an acceptance speech, he sang a song about someone who has their head chopped off. Perfect.
cheers
